Matrox has designed this adapter to easily split your display across three monitors, even if your computer only has one output. Just connect your computer and monitors to the appropriate DVI ports and get a new definition of "widescreen".

You can have one application open on each monitor, or you can stretch an application across all three. This lets you have all of a graphics programs tools on one screen and the uncluttered image on the other. Gamers get an expanded field of view to give them a great advantage since they can better see who is sneaking up on them.

2 out of 5 eggsMade it work, after some time

Pros: Worked on Win 7 -64 Pro. To some extend, it did what it promised, seemed well made, firmware updates & software updates (a must!) worked. Software actually worked fairly well.

Cons: Dated. Limited resolutions. For some odd reason, no native video Win 7 support (need to use their software) The specs are somewhat confusing, e.g., what monitors today go as low as 50Hz.?

Other Thoughts: I had the hardest time getting the DVI input to work with consistency. I used a tested good DVI-D cable, as well as the (very short) one provided. Ended up using the VGA input (it was for general office use, no gaming).

Bottom line: I consider this a legacy product, designed well before big wide screens were the norm. Like I said, I got it to work on Win 7-64, but I wouldn't do it again. Remember, the max. resolution is split by the number of outputs you use.

4 out of 5 eggsGaming

Pros: As been previously said, it's somewhat pricey, but it does what it's supposed to. Adding 3 monitors to the setup makes the pricetag expensive. I bought it for flight sim gaming and the set up works wonderfully after I bought 2 nvidia 550ti video cards to upgrade my gaming computer and am mostly satisfied.

Cons: I think the software does it's job also, except it's scattered around in the app's so due diligence is necessary. Figuring it all out can be frustrating.

Other Thoughts: I would suggest that anyone interested in this setup for gaming should know how to edit config files. I've got a number of flight sims to run across three monitors even though they weren't listed on the game list as optimized.

3 out of 5 eggsSimmers Dream

Pros: Great for surround gaming, been using now since January 2010. A simmers Dream! An huge boost in my productivity in graphics design having the 3 monitors as they can be set up with only this (or the newer surround gaming cards).
Newer firmware allows for 5760x1080 (3x 1920x1080) but you will need to be able to set your monitors to 50Hz for that, and 59Hz for 5040x1050. Fantastic unit and never regreted buying it. It changed the way I both work, and game tremendously.

Cons: The support is terrible. I've had this unit for over 2 years. In those two years I have written countless emails to support telling them the firmware on their website was trash. It wouldn't install (For anyone). They said "We're aware of this and working on a fix". They said that for over 18 months!!! And who knows how long before I got it. They are simply the worst and good luck waiting on a response also. After Effects and Photoshop users will have great reward using this (and Sounbooth\Audition) being able to move panels over 3 monitors, but beware. There are issues like PS's "Save for Web". If you go into that and cancel, you won't be able to get back to your work. I lost countless hours of work with this and the bottom line is really Adobe's fault 100%. There are other annomalies that are very annoying with Adobe products and this unit but my time runs out in character limit. One more thing, their "Powerdesk" software is terrible!

Other Thoughts: All in all, I've had more good times with this then bad. I still highly recommend it to people, especially since after 2 years they finally got the firmware that wouldn't work off their site, and uploaded the firmware that works. I recommend it telling people the cons as I did above, but their support is really just the worst. They weren't always so bad. They were Much better back in the 90's (back when they often had the top video cards). 2 years to take down faulty firmware has been the talk of many widescreen gaming forums for years. Their excuses are pathetic at best and no reason for that, it's just pure abandonment. Oh well, like I said it's now fixed but I still don't use their software. Save yourself a major headache also and forget the idea of using 3 different monitors together. It's slightly possible, but rare. Check the monitors on various widescreen gaming forums before you buy and see what others have confirmed to work. I wish I did that. 3, sets of monitors I went thru.

4 out of 5 eggsPersistence pays off

Pros: 5760 x 1080. Makes FSX a new ball game with three 24" 16 x 9 monitors.

Cons: TH2G came without mandatory 2 foot DVI cable. Upon communicating with NE was told none in stock. Find my own. Called Matrox direct and ordered for another $15. Then spent an hour on phone with Matrox tech support who were very helpful in enabling my full 5760 x 1080 resolution.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Device - Read CURRENT reviews

Pros: * Supports my high resolution with DVI edition (5760x1080) (Requires firmware/software update from website - don't pay attention to the old specifications, it does support 5760x1080 at 50Hz)
* Spans desktop, however, with Powerdesk software, you can still snap Windows to the screen if you want.
* Plays my games effortlessly - Puts me in the game
* Works on my KVM DualLink DVI (GCS1782)

Cons: * I still gave 5 stars and this isn't so much a con as it is a warning... Make sure you get the right edition...
Anything with a DisplayPort (Macbooks/SomeLaptops) needs the DP edition - this is not that edition. Think of it this way:
* DP edition - Can do it all (VGA, DVI and DP), however, you will need additional adapters
* DVI - (this version) can do DVI (input from Analog also included)
* Analog - Obviously Analog

Other Thoughts: This device is great. I actually got an open box on Newegg for very cheap, so even though I did my homework and saw that I most likely needed the DP edition, I decided to go for it anyways. Works great on DVI, but my DP still shows only on one screen. I may return or sell and get the DP edition. Either way, I will be using a TripleHead2Go somehow!

2 out of 5 eggsJust get a RADEON

Pros: Works like advertised Only makes sense if you travel with multiple monitors however absurd that may sound

Cons: PRICE PRICE PRICE, this should essentially be a $30 adapter for the convenience of extending your desktop, if your going to spend over $100 or $300 you may as well get an EYEFINITY in the RADEON grahpics cards and at least you get more connections higher performing computer and the ability to build a second rig, why spend it on adding a third or 4th monitor

Other Thoughts: Waste of money!

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: What can I say, it takes 3 monitors and makes them act as one.

Cons: I am not very fond of the software that's used for managing the monitors. So I had to dock an egg. I've received errors while trying to shift resolutions on several occasions. I have not been able to get the Surround Gaming utility to work correctly on Windows 7. I'm sure this is an issue with Windows 7's security features, as I get write errors when the utility tries to modify game files.

4 out of 5 eggsRE: Windows Error

Pros: Good product, works well for what it advertises. Much cheaper/easier than purchasing a quad-output vid card.

Cons: Not many.

Other Thoughts: MUST HAVE DUAL-LINK DVI CABLES AND GRAPHICS CARD. This is mentioned in the description, but is somewhat vague. That is most likely why the user below is getting the "Windows Error" and cannot do the higher resolutions. I could not get mine to work either and switched to an nVidia 8400GS and it worked. Apparently my other card was not dual-link capable. You also have to make sure to have the dual-link DVI cables, which do not have the missing pins in the middle of the plug.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with Linux

Pros: This box stitches together 3 monitors up to 1680x1050, or 2x1920x1080. If your using an nvidia card, getting Xinerama (e.g. so you can maximize windows within 1 screen instead of it being stretched out across all 3) to work is a snap. Just add "XineramaInfoOverride" tags to your xorg.conf file and it works like a charm.

Cons: You have to initialize the hardware on windows to get it to do 3x1680x1050 properly under linux.

Needs a USB port to operate.
All monitors need to run at the same resolution.

Other Thoughts: I own two of these and have never seen it fail even placed behind the hot exhaust vent on the host machine for 6+ months.

4 out of 5 eggsGaming with extended Peripherals!! Legit

Pros: Works great with WoW, Gears of War, Crysis, and Grid!! The first time I played I got dizzy from all the movement. Crysis on Ultra settings across three 23" screens is absolutely amazing.

Cons: Had some trouble with Grand Theft Auto IV and F.E.A.R. Also games that do not have native compatibility require downloaded drivers, but that's ok. I wish it triplehead was compatible with SC2.

Other Thoughts: I'm running dual 9800 GTX+'s and using 3 identical 23 inch displays. Not sure how it works with different size displays or brands. I did try with only one GFX card and it still worked but at lower graphics settings obviously.
